Port Harcourt Bolt drives begins strike to protest inadequate pay

Scores of bolt drivers in Port Harcourt on Monday began their protest over low fares and increased commission from the e-hailing companies.

The aggrieved drivers who drove to the Cool, Wazobia, Nigeria Info complex this morning to complain, carried placards with inscriptions like “Say no to modern slavery”, “Enough of ‘come to the back seat for your payment’ from female riders”, “We are partners not slaves”, “Treat your drivers well”, amongst others.

Leader of the protesters said the current price charged on their services does not reflect the current economic situation in the country, given the hike in the price of petrol.

He complained of poor working relationship from e-hailing companies, and called for these companies to establish offices in Port Harcourt.
